I like Landscapes, Natural history and motor sport best, I’m not naturally an early riser but when I have made the effort to get up at 2am and climb to the top of a hill or get on a beach for sunrise I have never been disappointed.
My favourite locations are hilltops or coastal, I don’t do ‘People’ pictures. I make as much time as I can between family, work, and other commitments to take pictures and enjoy family holidays and photo club trips for this reason. Photo club trips where shooting will start before dawn and not finish until gone midnight are especially enjoyable as you are with like minded people so you can eat, sleep and talk all things photography all the time without fear of boring your audience.
I use a Nikon D800 and I mainly use a 14-24 wide angle or a 24-70F2.8, I also always have my Sony NEX7 compact camera which is superb in my pocket so I never miss an opportunity to get a shot.
I always shoot RAW and use Lightroom to process images, and on competition shots I will use the Nik suite of plug in’s to bring out the very best in the shot. Lack of time is my problem, I take many shots but don’t process many so when I do finish a great shot I like to print it to A3+ size using a Canon 9500 Mk2 printer and display it on the walls of my home.
So, that’s me, photographically speaking…. I hope you enjoy my work and experience even a fraction of the pleasure from my images that I get from shooting them. I’m inspired daily by the great work I see on Google+, Flickr and 500px and it just pushes me to want to get better and go further…. Here’s to the next great trip wherever that may be.
